Just Takes 2™ Benjamin Biggs Quilt Block 4


Even though it's April Fool's Day today you won't find me playing any practical jokes here! It's a Just Takes 2 Benjamin Biggs quilt day and we've got stitching to do. I think you'll find today's block a breath of fresh air after the intense work on tiny stems and little round cherries in last month's block.

Benjamin Biggs Quilt Block 4

Block 4

I know it looks like I have the block is upside down but that's the way it's set in the quilt. I'm not sure if I'll orient it that way in my quilt or turn it around. Seems kind of odd to me this way.

Benjamin Biggs Block 4 signature I studied this signature for quite a while. It looks like -

Ann R. Mering
Ring Brook 1849

Benjamin Biggs Block 4 for quilting The quilting, the quilting. There's lots of quilting in this block but it's a bit difficult to see. There's a large picture in the pattern file and you can enlarge this one to look it over. I've found feather wreaths, feather sprays or a sprig of feathers depending on what you want to call it and a flower or leaf design. You could use lots of designs to dress up this Carolina Lily block.
If you'e just joining us and missing the first three blocks you can purchase them HERE

    I may turn it around. It is a beautiful block. Obviously Gay meant 1849 instead of 1949. I was alive in 1949, and I know this quilt is older than I am……..not much is older than I am these days though!

    Handwriting anaylsis of old handwriting is tough. I know. I look at a lot of old genealogy records! It looks like Ring Creek 1847 to me.
